Rahul Kumar, a Class XII student of Delhi Public School, Ranchi, said, “After the cancellation of board exams, I am solely focusing on cracking the IIT (JEE). Earlier, I was studying for both the board and the competitive examinations.”
Another Class XII student named Nirmaan Prasad, who is studies in Jawahar Vidya Mandir (JVM) Shyamli, said, “Now we have no option but to focus on JEE. All this while, we were just focused on board exams.” He added, “The government decision to hold four entrance examinations for JEE would give more time to students to prepare but at the same time increase the level of competition.”

Pankaj Singh, a coaching institute owner, said that NEET aspirants are undergoing online coaching, tests and doubt clearing session at the moment.
A significant section of the humanities students are, however, worried about the mode of awarding board marks. Sudhanshu Pandey, a Class XII student of JVM Shyamli, said, “Many students were not serious during internal examinations and they were planning to focus on improving their performance in the board exams. These students are fearing that if CBSE adopts marks them on the basis of internal examinations it would be difficult for them to get admission in renowned institutes like the Delhi University.”
